TGIF – good news from the in-house counsel compensation front – a recent survey reveals that compensation is on the rise:
In-house lawyers work hard for the money. And in spite of a still-sputtering economy, their companies appear to be treating them right. Respondents to a recent survey by HBR Consulting overwhelmingly indicated that compensation for in-house lawyers went up in the past year.
Seventy-nine percent of companies said pay for in-house counsel went up modestly, while 19 percent said compensation remained flat. Just 2 percent of companies reported a modest decrease in pay.
